Why Our Approach is Better
The design of each Cognispeed program is grounded in the latest developments in neuroscience and developmental psychology. Our research director is Harvard-trained and an occasional Guest-Lecturer there. Before we release a program for online use, it is field-tested face to face with client-families attending our clinic in Overland Park, KS.
Parents, please don’t spend HOURS each night battling through homework. It’s okay for you to be a hero once or twice a month, but if you step in any more often than that, you may not be very pleased with your progress (or your own level of exhaustion) six or twelve months from now.
Far better, in our opinion, is to rekindle a positive relationship with your daughter in the short term, and use a brain training approach to make HER stronger in the long term.
The better she can focus and make good decisions for herself, the fewer decisions you’ll have to make for her.
Cognispeed as Compared to Our SCOPES Program
SCOPES is our ‘coaching’ program – whereas this program, Cognispeed, is a ‘training’ program designed to build mental focus and efficiency.
- Cognispeed addresses students’ underlying cognitive roadblocks and inefficiencies.
- SCOPES helps students – and/or their parents – prioritize and organization challenges in school that can’t wait for a long-term solution to take hold.
- It’s rare for us to run both SCOPES and Cognizone at the same time with the same student.
- Students with both short and long term needs (which comprises most of our client base) typically benefit from a layer by layer approach: SCOPES first, to build a plan. Then Cognizone to strengthen the student, then SCOPES again to put new skills into action and revise our plan, and so on and so on.
We provide families with two distinct program options because each family we serve has their own unique set of challenges, strengths, hopes and dreams.
